About Me.

My name is Aaliyah and I’m a multidisciplinary Graphic designer and Artist based in Birmingham UK.

I enjoy exploring creative possibilities of using different mediums from prints to digital design. Aaliyah's artistic endeavours finds her voice in the realm of digital art and traditional needle felt craft. In the age of technology Aaliyah strives to ignite a conversation between the viewer and the work, reminding them that life has its soft and cosy moments and that digital environments aren't the only places to feel a sense of relief.
